Sunday, a lovely calm day started out with a very moderate temperature, an ideal day for riding a motorbike. We met up with other club members at Juffroushoogte for a trip through to Lambert's Bay to visit the good ladies at "Cool Kidz" safe home. The group ended up being seven members and four visitors and as we headed out onto the R27 the only downside to the whole day was that we were in our bakkie! (pick-up, ute)
The reason for this unfortunate situation was that through the kindness and generosity of biker friends and family there was quite a load of groceries and clothing to be delivered, some Christmas cheer for the hard working people at the home.
We met up with the riders at around the halfway point just before Eland's Bay for the traditional "tea break".

We spent about an hour with Tanya and Irene and the babies at "Cool Kidz", a huge thank you to all of you who so generously donated the food, clothing and cash and helped make their Christmas just that little bit better.
As restaurants in Lambert's Bay were fully booked we went back to Vensterklip just outside of Eland's Bay for a beer or two and something to eat. We've stopped there many times, it is a pleasant, rustic place and welcoming to bikers. The food prices are reasonable and the food is good, perhaps because it was busy we had to wait for over an hour for our food but nobody had any trains to catch so we were relaxed.

I would like to take this opportunity to wish all of you a very Merry Christmas (and if you don't celebrate Christmas, don't take offense have a great weekend), peace love and prosperity and may the coming year bring everything that you wish for yourselves.
I sincerely thank you for supporting this blog, stay safe out there and keep the shiny side up LH&R
